Specs: Windows 8.1, intel
Dear Folks, I got a dead NETGEAR Router N300 WNR2000; it is not giving any service for flushing amber lights, but in my opinion it is firmware update issue, and I don't know how do I have to install or update the firmware for this router? and also I don't want to messed up my new TREND net routers firmware while I try to install the firmware for DEAD NETGEAR ROUTER?
under above those circumstances, what is the best idea to do that? Thanks

hi folks what is new!

If the suggestions in #2 don't help then most likely you are right, it's a firmware issue. In which case without access it is going to be near impossible to flash it.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I followed your given document netgear website, and I found out the power light blinks green slowly and continuously, so I downloaded the net gear firmware to install it, but everytime it keep giving different popsup message like server name and password, and another downloaded firmware is corrupted so it shows red cautioned message.
under above those circumstances, what is the right path and location to get new or updated netgear firmware recover utility? Another question is that how do I have to install? and do I have to burn it in cd image for installation progress? I will be waiting for your reply!

There are 4 versions of this router. Make sure you have the right version downloaded.
Connect to the router with a LAN cable!! Don't use WI-FI when upgrading the routers firmware. There is no need to burn to a CD.

To restore to default configuration: (from the manual)

1. Use a sharp object such as a pen or a paper clip to press and hold the restore factory settings button, located on the rear panel of the router, for about 5 seconds, until the Power light begins to blink (see “Back Panel” on page 5).
2. Release the restore factory settings button, and wait for the router to restart, and for the Power light to stop blinking and become solid green.
The factory default settings will be restored so that you can access the router from our Web browser using the factory defaults.

If you haven't already done the restore (see #4) then there is a chance that will fix it without any firmware update.

Firstly,I already used the sharp object (like tiny screwdriver) to press and hold the restore factory settings button, but it was still keep blinking green without restarting to become solid green.
2ndly, I connected the router with LAN cable to update firmware, but the same result arrived again.
Lastly, I really need to know again the right website to download the firmware of netgear router N300 WNR2000V4.

To update the firmware in a router you normally have to go to its own settings webpage and select the option. It's given here although for most routers just the 192.168.1.1 part is sufficient:
http://routerguide.net/netgear-wnr2...

That is what I mean earlier when I said it is going to be tricky to do so as from what you've said it seems you can't get into 192.168.1.1 (or whatever).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
